Good Afternoon,

Other than using sql in the SQL Server Management Studio to access the data, are there any free programs that can link to Management Studio to display the data in it.  These are mdf files.

Thank you.

Also Microsoft Access or the open source OpenOffice/LibreOffice "Base" applications. You can also create Java and .Net applications for viewing the data online, though there's a long learning curve there. You can even save a query in Excel (Data --> From Other Sources) to pull data into a spreadsheet.

Note that it's one thing to view the data, and quite another to be able to modify it.
